Vetting (1407A/21)


In the wake of Sarah Everard murder by the police, the vetting policy of the police comes under scrutiny.

Please could you detail the vetting policy of the West Midlands Police for new recruits, current police including senior ranks and officers, police staff.

What organisation/s carries out the vetting?

What procedures does the vetting consist of?

How long does vetting last before it is renewed?

What training do the vetters receive in vetting?


Please find attached our response.
